With the Blue-Gold game approaching Saturday, Brian Kelly and his staff have just a few more practices to build the Irish until fall camp. Tasked with an ambitious list of objectives, the work already accomplished has been plentiful.
Defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder has installed a new scheme. Kelly and offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock have rebooted the offense as well, going back to Kelly's spread roots, with hopes that it brings a return to the prolific scoring offenses Kelly had at Cincinnati.
As it often happens during spring, some answers have revealed themselves. Ronnie Stanley looks like the heir apparent to Zack Martin. Steve Elmer will move into Chris Watt's spot at left guard as redshirt Mike McGlinchey takes over at right tackle.
With Everett Golson being pushed at quarterback by Malik Zaire, Kelly finally has two triggermen that can run his up-tempo spread attack.
But with a national broadcast of the Blue-Gold game on tap for Saturday on the NBC Sports Network, let's look at five questions that still need answering for the Irish.
